Reviews for Lamictal ODT
"I have Bipolar Disorder, PTSD, and a slew of other diagnosis. I've been taking Lamictal (name brand) since 2003 for the Bipolar Disorder and can't recommend it highly enough. It has made ALL the difference. I've had PTSD for several years and hadn't done much (or anything, really) about it until last year when something happened to me that forced me to seek help. While searching for a way to treat it without adding medication, I learned that Lamictal treats it, so my Dr tweaked the Lamictal dose to therapeutic 200mg and once again, it has made ALL the difference in the PTSD symptoms. They're barely noticeable, and I've since learned how to keep the triggers at bay as much as possible. As for side effects, just the dry mouth. I've tried Lamotrigine (generic) and had nothing but side effects. Yes, there's a HUUUGE difference between generic and name brand. With my insurance, I pay a small amount for it, which is good because it's around $300/month without it."

For Bipolar Disorder "I'd give 10 stars, but after 5 yrs on this med I feel as I'm becoming dependent and immune at the same time. I take 400mg/daily and if I miss a dose by1 hr I get a horrible headache. Meanwhile for the past yr I feel as if I need to bump up the doses. My psychiatrist said that 400mg is a very high dose and she's not comfortable exceeding. I take the dissolving tablets, which I found is a slow release and I'm able to get thru my day more easily. Also, because this is a brand name, is very hard to find it in stock! I definitely would recommend this drug, after trying numerous, this was the one that controlled my mood swings without side effects."
